Wyoming Won’t Provide Voter Information

Posted in

Trump administration officials recently sent requests to all 50 states for publicly available information as part of an investigation into the integrity of elections. Wyoming has joined the over two-dozen states that have partially or fully denied the administration's request.

In a news release issued by the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office, Secretary of State Ed Murray said that his decision to deny the request for voter information from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity came down to his strong belief in a citizen’s right of privacy. Murray went on to say that he believes elections are the responsibility of the states under the U.S. Constitution and that he feels that the request could lead to a federal overreach.

He said that “Wyoming’ elections are secure, fair, transparent and well run”. He assured every Wyoming citizen that he will continue to safeguard the privacy of the State’s voters, while continuing to uphold and protect the integrity of Wyoming’s elections.
